Paramedic Violet Mikami returned to Chicago Fire on the latest episode of the show. Played by actress Hanako Greensmith, the character hadn’t been seen since a string of episodes in Season 8.
Violet’s return was a bit unexpected, as she popped up during an off-site training session that Gallo, Mackey, Ritter, and Mouch went to participate in. And, she definitely showed that she is good at her job.
“Oh. Boy. That’s my ex,” Gallo stated to Mackey as they arrived at the TRA training and noticed that Violet was also there.
Nobody should be surprised that Violet also showed up during the final episode for paramedic Gianna Mackey. It was not a coincidence. Later in that same episode, it was clear that there was still some chemistry between Gallo and Violet that will get explored a bit.
Who plays Violet Mikami on Chicago Fire cast?
Hanako Greensmith was a good addition to the show when she appeared in four episodes of Season 8. For viewers who want to go back and see when we last saw the character, Violet appeared in 51’s Original Bell, which served as Chicago Fire Season 8, Episode 20.
Below is a scene involving Violet, Gallo, and the two firehouses that were at odds during Season 8.
Greensmith doesn’t have a lot of other acting credits to her name, but she did appear on an episode each of FBI (Appearances as Bonnie Snow) and Bull (Excessive Force as Veronica Hill).
We are definitely going to see more from Violet Mikami on Chicago Fire this season, but we won’t spoil how she is going to play into the central storylines. Just tune in each Wednesday night for the new episodes and you will find out pretty quickly.
